Enroll in College Without a High School Diploma through C4L Academy

Published: September 21, 2022
 

Just because you didn’t earn your high school diploma or GED doesn’t mean you’re ineligible for a college education. It’s possible to enroll in college without a high school diploma, thanks to a special program from the C4L Academy. Through this program, you can complete your high school education and vocational training at the same time.

Earn High School and College Diploma at the Same Time

In partnership with Charter College, the C4L Program allows you to train for a career while you pursue your high school diploma. When you graduate from the program, you earn two diplomas and are prepared to start a career in an industry such as business, healthcare, or the Trades. The program offers several benefits for adult learners:

Benefits of C4L Program

  • Online Instruction—You’re much busier than you were in high school. You may have a family and a job, which means you need flexibility in your class schedule. With online instruction, you can complete your classes at your convenience, from the comfort of your own home.
  • Hands-On Learning—For your certificate program, participate in hands-on learning that gives you experience and puts your classroom knowledge into practice.
  • Success Coaching—To ensure you keep up with your academics and access the resources you need, you will be paired with a success coach. This person will provide support, answer your questions, and help you stay on track as you work toward dual diplomas.

Perhaps the biggest benefit of the program is that you don’t have to pay for the high school diploma. C4L is offered at no charge to students who enroll in a career training program. The only requirement is that you take the Wonderlic ATB test, which verifies that you are ready to continue your education.
